Stopping malpractice

When a trader infringes consumer rights, public authorities or consumer rights organisations can apply for an injunction to stop the malpractice.

An injunction is an order granted by a court or an administrative body that defends the collective interests of consumers in the internal market.

An injunction is taken in the country where the infringement originated, but protects consumers across Europe.
